I found some silverplate pieces thrifting~ a few trays, a mismatched coffee server and some stray cream & sugars~
Tarnished and a few pieces pitted and scratched~
ideal for a little project for our feathered friends.
I had a little tabletop fun celebrating their faded glory before I decided to give them a new life and repurpose as feeders.
I bought 1/2 inch copper pipe at Lowe’s~ 10 feet for $10.42. I used a tool my husband had, similar to this one, that cuts by scoring the pipe and is easy to use, cutting the pipe into 3 different lengths.
A hole drilled in the bottom of the teapot allows the seed to dispense and makes for a self-serve feeder ~
I used 1/2″ copper caps (75 cents) and a couple of washers (13 cents) so there was a little more surface area to glue the cap to the bottom of the tray and cream & sugar.
From sugar to sunflower seed~
From cream to safflower seed~
Served with a side of Daffodil :)
